Tiger Tiger

You’ve given up the day job you’re a creature of the night, tiger tiger
I’m weak in just one place but I can see it’s caught your eye, tiger tiger

And in the dark I hear you growl
Tiger tiger on the prowl                          

Well your coat of coal and amber cuts the air like fire and ice, tiger tiger
And the trail of your destruction is distracting me from mine, tiger tiger

Chorus

Now in those diamond eyes there is a predatory glint, tiger tiger
I’m wild awake and wiser men have backed down from the brink, tiger tiger

Chorus

You said you’d change your stripes but you are given to deceit, tiger tiger
You’re ruthless when you’re charming and disarmingly discrete, tiger tiger
